We salute this fun, patriotic kick-off to your 4th of July barbeque. Alternate grape tomatoes with small mozzarella balls, and place a blue cocktail napkin in the corner to look like the American flag, then set it out with some toothpicks for everyone to snack on. No napkin? No problem! Use our flag template or cut a square out of a blue piece of paper and draw on some stars with a white paint pen or add some star stickers. It’s a centerpiece and first course all in one.

What you’ll need:

  • Grape tomatoes
  • Bocconcini Mozzarella Balls
  • Blue Napkins with Stars or Flag Template
  • Toothpicks (or spoons) for serving

Step one: Get a large rectangular plate or tray and place a square napkin or our flag template in the left-hand corner.
Step two: Fill out the rest of the tray with alternating lines of red tomatoes and white mozzarella until you have a flag.
